The uncertainty principle says that you can't simultaneously measure position and momentum with arbitrary precision. So you can measure one at a time t1 and the other at a time t2 with t2 > t1, thus not measuring both simultaneously, but relativity tell us that there exists a frame of reference in which these events are simultaneous and therefore an observer in that frame of reference will notice the measurements being carried out on both with arbitrary precision at the same time. How does one solve this apparent paradox?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
